About Owner/Property Manager

My wife Anne and I have lived in Grand Isle, Vermont for Twenty one years. Now we are raising our three year old son MAX here. Anne takes the ferry to work across the lake in Plattsburgh, NY. When I am not looking after MAX, I work as a Cabinet Maker out of our home here in Grand Isle. We both love to sail and spend a lot of our free time racing sailboats.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Lake Champlain Islands

We found this property seven years ago. it is just down the street from where we first lived in Grand Isle. We had been looking for a property to invest in for years. when this one became available we jumped on it. We are so glad we did. It is a special place and I hope you will enjoy it.

What makes this cottage unique

There are a few things that makes our cottage so wonderful. First, It sits only 30 feet from the lake so you feel like you are right there. There is a screened in porch where you can spend long evenings drinking wine and talking about your day or relaxing with a book. One of my favorite things to do is to sit on the lawn in an Adirondack Chair on a nice summer afternoon and watch the sailboats go by. The cottage is a quiet place. It sits 300 feet from a road that is not busy in the first place. If you want to venture out for the day or evening there are great choices. First, there are some great restaurants locally. Burlington is only 30 minutes away and if you have never been to Burlington you need to go. Burlington is a wonderful small city with fantastic restaurants, shops, music, and more. Montreal is a 90 minute drive north. just don't forget your passport.

Grand Isle is a wonderful place to bike, paddle, fish, swim, or just hang out and relax with your favorite drink. I hope you come and enjoy our cottage.

We loved the location on the lake. It was the feel of the cabin that made us smile and made us think

  • 5 of 5

It was a great experience. We loved the cabin and it's feel. The location gave us access to everything we needed.

Bring on the quiet

  • 3 of 5

off season quiet time with a lovely place to sit at the edge of the lake, which often appeared as a windy ocean! Lovely setting. We did appreciate the porch and the lawn furniture. Nothing fancy about the house, but it was affordable, well-stocked and clean.

Cottage on the Lake with fantastic views of Lake Champlain and Adirondack Mtns

  • 4 of 5

What a great cottage right on Lake Champlain's west shore with outstanding views of the lake and the Adirondack Mountains. Steps down to the small beach, however it's rocky so you will need water shoes or old sneakers to wear.

Property is very nice, with a small yard with trees for shade and a nice hammock. Nice neighbors. We found the location quiet, rarely heard traffic and went for walks on the road with no problems.

This is a cottage / camp and is not a nice year round home on the lake (plenty around here). All the necessities are there - city water, shower, small kitchen appliances - everything worked. Sorry no cable (PBS, CBS and NBC on antenna), wireless internet fast to enough to stream Netflix and youtube (bring a HDMI cable). Bedrooms were small, but functional. If you understand what you are renting there are no disappointments. Nice screen porch faces the lake. Gas fired stove does a nice job heating the cottage.

As noted, the view is spectacular, and worth the stay.

Dave the owner is great to work with.

Classic Lake cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was a cute classic lake cottage. We stayed with our 3 girls, ages 2 (twins) and 4. We were able to fit 2 pack-and-plays in one room and our four year old in the bed. Our room was nice too. Clean linens and plenty of pillows and blankets. Kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans as we like to travel as economically as possible and cook most our meals.

Gas fireplace was so nice to have as our first night was chilly.

Beach was under water due to high lake levels but our kids were able to splash and jump in the water still.

Was a great stay!

a classic lakeside cottage

  • 4 of 5

Sometimes almost TOO classic, but it's great to be right on the lake; the screen porch and the yard offer fantastic views of Champlain and the Adirondacks across the water. The 'beach' was a rocky one but you could enter the water with swim-shoes, or travel a short distance to a public sandy beach. It was November after all... so we weren't swimming anyway. The cottage itself was worn but okay: a decent and fairly well stocked kitchen, bedroom's small (access to the bed is tough being against the wall) but the bed is comfy, and the living-room offers a warm stove when needed and typical cottage seating. The wiring is in rough shape with too few outlets and plugs with bare wires pulling loose. We had a problem with brown water in the kitchen sink but that may have been caused by neighborhood line flushing. Bringing bottled water is always a good idea at lake cottages anyway.

All in all we had a nice stay.... though it was cold and we couldn't enjoy the outdoors fully. Burlington is close by, and a visit to Hero's Welcome General Store (N. Hero - 6 miles away) is a weird and wonderful shopping experience... food's good too. The scenery all around is fantastic, as always.

Owner's Response: The water at our cottage is excellent. The town flushed the lines the day before this guest arrived. That is why the water was brown when they first turned it on. The wiring at the cottage is fine. There is a lamp that could use a new cord which I will do promptly. I wish there were more outlets too, with all the charging of devices that we do. I will make sure I add two more outlets in the living room before the 2017 season starts.

Gorgeous views; Great family get-away

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend - gorgeous Fall foliage, incredible sunset and sunrises over Lake Champlain, bonfire on the beach. Only half hour from Burlington meant that our UVM student felt like she "got away". The weather was turning colder but the gas stove heated the whole place up nicely. Dave was great - easy to communicate with and very welcoming. We're going to make it an annual thing!
